Wait for God

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. (Romans 12:9-13)

Romans 12:12 is an encouragement to us to pray and wait.

We are to continue steadfastly in prayer and we are to wait patiently.

We are to find hope in God.

With the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is abundant redemption (Psalm 130:7).

God does not depend on our time.

God will act at the fullness of His time.

Our prayer may not necessary rush God into action, but it places us before Him in fellowship.

What a privilege we have to fellowship with God in prayer and to wait for the answer in the fullness of His time.
